Police have arrested the partner of Tina Kontozis, who was bashed to death with cricket bat in her Bundeena home south of Sydney on Sunday, Fairfax media reports.

Stephen Boyd, 51, was arrested and taken into police custody at 4.55pm on Monday after police spotted him driving down the Kings Highway at Braidwood. 

 

 

Police were called to the home in Beachcomber Avenue about 3.30pm on Sunday after neighbours heard fighting and screaming. It is believed Ms Kontozis, 51, was bashed to death with a cricket bat.

 

A 17-year-old boy sought refuge at a nearby home and is in a satisfactory condition in hospital. It's understood he suffered injuries to his arm trying to protect Ms Kontozis.
